Game Preview: FAU vs Texas

Owls look to force the pass; create turnovers in Austin

After back-to-back one-point wins over Western Kentucky and Louisiana Lafayette, Florida Atlantic football travels out of conference this Saturday to take on one of the most storied programs in the country in the University of Texas.

Led by the legendary Head Coach Mack Brown, the Longhorns havenít quite lived up to the preseason top-five ranking that many had given them. Instead they have struggled all season long, compiling a 4-6 losing record while going just 1-4 at home.

Despite the overall record and the fact that Texas has lost four straight games, FAU still understands what kind of team they are facing this weekend on the road. The Longhorns have to win their final two games to become bowl-eligible, and that means a win over the Owls is essential.

ďThere a good team, there record might not say it, but they are a good team. They are 4-6, they are going to come out fighting hard, they donít want to lose this game, if they lose one more they are done,Ē defensive end Jamere Johnson said.

FAUís defense will need a near perfect performance against Texas to pull off an upset, and Johnson along with the rest of the defensive line could be just the key to a victory.
